Abstract (en)

In a navigation apparatus, destination data are narrowed down in accordance with an input search character string, for each of a plurality of search items. The resultant destination data narrowed down for each search item are stored in association with each search character string. Destination data included in common for all search character strings are extracted by performing a logical AND operation, and resultant extracted destination data are displayed as candidate destination points. A user is allowed to input search character strings in an arbitrary order the user wants, without concern for whether the search character strings are of a name, a genre, or an address.
